Supply includes the design and installation of Bricmont's Level 2 System, used to model and control the heating of each combustion zone. Start-up is scheduled for this month.

Bricmont is also supplying the materials and engineering for the modification of PT. Gunung Raja Paksi's walking hearth furnace to a top and bottom fired pusher type furnace in West Java, Indonesia.

A hydraulic-type pusher will replace the existing electro-mechanical type. Start-up is scheduled for October 2007.
